Walkthrough

This quest begins automatically when Bald Mountain finishes. Several situations are now in play:

  • During Now or Never if you romatically engage with Triss, and during Last Wish if you romantically engage with Yen, then Three to Tango is available. If you didn't do both then it is not available.
  • If you killed *****son Junior during Get Junior, you speak with Dudu during this quest, if not you speak with *****son during these quests.
  • During For the Advancement of Learning if you ask Keir to travel to Kaer Morhen, she has already left. If you let her visit Radovid, she has been executed by the witch hunters. A Final Kindness is then available.
  • If Sile surived in Witcher 2, she can be found with Margarita during The Great Escape. If not she is not in the prison.
  • During Now or Never, if you rescued the mages and sorceresses, Radovid and the witch hunters have begun burning nonhumans instead. If not all the mages and sorceresses are burned at the stake.
  • During Reason of State if you helped with the plot to assassinate the king this quest continues after speaking to Dijkstra during the quest Blindingly Obvious.

One week has passed since you defeated Imlerith and you have returned to Novigrad. Enter Dandelion's place, Rosemary and Thyme and speak to Zoltan, answering however you wish. Speak to Dandelion. This quest now becomes a tracking quest and tracks the events of Blindingly Obvious, The Great Escape and Payback. You can now begin any of those three.

Once you have completed the three quests, return to the Rosemary and Thyme. Ciri is at the top of the stairs. You may choose to stay put and spy through the keyhole, improving Ciri's confidence and making a positive choice towards her fate. If you go in with her and back her up this shakes her self confidence and has a negative impact on her fate.

Ciri will be invited to join the lodge. Yen arrives and asks you to check on Avallac'h. The quest Through Time and Space now begins.
